states. we all get to exercise that right today. including the candidates. governor romney voted this morning in belmont, massachusetts. paul ryan cast his ballot in janesville, wisconsin. joe biden checked the box for the obama ticket in his home state of delaware. you will remember, president obama voted early in chicago back on october 25. but today, it's really up to you. in this hour we'll check in with carl cameron at the romney headquarters in boston. plus ed henry with the obama camp in chicago. we'll tell you which states to watch, when the polls close and what is at stake in each one of them. plus, we'll run down reports of voter fraud and intimidation. hope you stay with us for the hour. the way we'll do it, run to the swing state and start with virginia. bob, what is going on in virginia? what is the latest? >> bob: it depends on the turn-out in the northern virginia. democratic stronghold. the other issue is how big they turn out in virginia beach and hampton road area. promilitary. obama did very well down there last time. he won't do as well this time. >> eric: can
with governor mitt romney and plan to do so because they love their country and are downfright frightened at the direction we are headed under this president's failed policies. i will check in with governor sarah palin about the controversial revenge vote strategy. and later on newt gingrich will join me. let's look at that the momentum seems to be on the side of team romney. a series of polls out of a number of swing states. first we start in colorado according to it the latest rasmussen survey romney is leading obama 50 to 47%. the governor finds himself on top in the unlikely swing state of minnesota. he leads there 46-45. and then there is michigan where the obama campaign is relentlessly spread lies about governor romney's position on the gm bailout and propaganda there has not worked and the governor is now tied with president obama and then, of course, the great state of ohio where the latest polls show that romney and the president are in a dead heat. and on the eve of mitt romney's planned visit to pennsylvania, a "tribune review" survey shows that both candidates are now locked
. but then there is the state of indiana. "fox news" now projects governor mitt romney will win the state of indiana which president obama did win four years ago. that's a turnover. 5% of the votes in but the model suggests to us it is good gh to mitt romney according to the "fox news" decision team has won the state of indiana. "fox news" also projects governor romney will win in the bluegrass state kentucky with 4% of all precincts reporting. 2/3 of all voters are voting "fox news" ney and projects romney wins kentucky. outh too close to call in s carolina. none of the precincts are can project t we president obama will win in the state of vermont. six states where the polls have just closed. we've made calls in two of them. and in the others we can't yet make a call but they'll come. three important senate races among those that have just called. we have three in virginia, democrats are trying to hold tant seat.por for now that race is too close to call between kain and allen. this senate race will give us a lot of information about the way voters were pushed and pulled. there is a third party candidat
-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely voters approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. haven't seen numbers like that for this president on a single event, of course, going back to bin laden. and we may be seeing a sandy effect in other numbers. when voters are asked which candidate has better leadership qualities, the president -- more now pick the president. two weeks ago mitt romney led in that question, 44% to 40%. this doesn't mean romney doesn't have some things going for him. he's winning independents, the group the president won in 2008. romney leads them now by seven points. and romney leads by five points when voters are asked which candidate is better prepped to create jobs and improve the economy. still, the president continues to have a double digit lead on which candidate will do better at looking 0 out for the middle class. obama leads by 11 points on that economic values question, if you will. so where does this race stand? the best gauge may be th
, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermont, a very blue state weighing in early and president obama, abc news, based on the exit polls is ready to project a winner in vermont right now. let's tell you aboutther states. we have too little information to make a projection. georgia, a red state, bill clinton won in 1992, but no other republican or every republican has won since then and south carolina, solid red state, not enough information to project at this point, so -- and virginia, this is a big one, george, and we do not have enough information at this moment. we are watching it every single moment. we'll bring you the news as we have it. >> that is the biggest surprise so far. a must win for mitt romney. the overall map. as you said no big surprises right now. a lot of votes outstanding but the polls are closing. the race could not be closer. both 2012 stavote 2012 sta
, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim

president is there to cut a deal. the people who brought romney who wouldn't. now they bought him. does anyone really think he will finally stand up to them? what makes anyone think he will not dance with the one that brung him. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.
